Directions to Kafue National Park
At 22 400Km2 (about the size of Wales) this is the largest of Zambia's parks and one of the larger national parks in the world. Fed by three large rivers, the Lunga, Lufupa and Kafue rivers this water rich park has a diverse range of wildlife. The game numbers are probably not as plentiful as the South Luangwa National Park but increased numbers of lodges and camps and sterling work by Game Rangers International are showing encouraging signs.
The Busanga Swamps in the northern sector of the park is extremely wet and you may be lucky enough to spot the very shy sitatunga. The Busanga Plains boast large herds of red lechwe and puku as well as groups of zebra and blue wildebeest. These larger herds attract the predators, especially lion, leopard and cheetah.
Game in the southern sector is more patchy but generally found around the protected lodges. This area is probably more elephant rich than other places in the park. Camp Phoenix, the elephant orphan release facility is located in the southern sector of the park and well worth a visit but do book in advance.
Birding in the Kafue is very good with almost 500 recorded species, probably due to the different habitats.
